Student to perform classical concert at COM
College of the Mainland music student Jack McLaughlin, who was recently accepted to study at the University of Houston Moore School of Music, will be performing a full-length piano concert at the COM Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Building at 7 p.m. on Tues., Aug. 21.
McLaughlin will perform classical selections from Bach, Beethoven, Prokofiev and Liszt.
“The program is a junior recital that Jack has prepared before he has even started his junior year,” said McLaughlin’s music teacher, Dr. Paul Boyd. “This is a phenomenal achievement by one of COM's students who enrolled while still in high school.”
McLaughlin began studying at COM as a dual credit student taking college-level music lessons while still in high school. His interest in classical music was sparked as a child after listening to a Chopin CD. Classical music became “part of who I am,” he said.
The COM Music Program offers students instruction in musical and vocal performance through first-rate instructors and performers. The program is designed for individuals interested in pursuing a music career or who wish to improve their musical skills for their personal satisfaction.
